The Chinese innovation train is heading for Europe at high-speed. The train will not stop, so leverage China’s global ambition to your advantage. Jump on the train, now. Chinese brands still have a lot to learn about Europe and we can learn a thing or two from China as well.
Pascal Coppens has employed, partnered and competed in China with hundreds of Chinese innovators over the past 20 years.
His candid presentations with real-life examples will be eye opening, create food-for-thought and uncover patterns for you to turn the Chinese innovation train into an opportunity for your business.
Pascal inspires the most during a 45-60 minutes keynote, but a shorter or longer version can be provided upon request, and can be tailored to specific sectors. The keynote can be delivered in English, Dutch, French and Chinese.
KEYNOTE & WORKSHOP TOPICS
How China sets the standard for innovation
This keynote will elaborate on the six waves of innovation in China, and how China is now ready to take on the challenge to become a global leader in innovation by 2030.
Topics we will cover:
Smart Industries insights possible:
Transformation focus possible:
Silicon Valley and China’s tech ecosystem cities (such as Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Shanghai) are the fastest evolving innovation hubs in the world. But inspiration from pioneering startups, corporates and academics from these distant corners of the globe should not be an ‘either, or’ story. Each has its very own background, innovation DNA, culture, methods and strategies. Each has the potential to trigger you in ways you’d never thought possible.
And who better to inspire you in the matter than serial entrepreneur & Silicon Valley aficionado Peter Hinssen and China evangelist Pascal Coppens?
Book Peter and Pascal for an eye-opening double keynote on the uniquely successful innovation approaches of Silicon Valley and China. They’ll bring you on a holistic journey into the heart of technological, societal, individual and business (model) change. If you want to really understand the depth and complexity of innovation, and the potential of disruption: this 3-hour twin journey will change your perspective forever!

"I was told beforehand that Pascal would give me food for thought with his presentation, but he certainly did more than that. He compared China to Silicon Valley in a way that was both fascinating and eye-opening. And Pascal’s expertise and passion for the subject made his story all the more interesting. I ended up inviting him back for an event of my own and I was pleased to see that the audience had the exact same reaction to his presentation as I had. Pascal’s presentation is definitely worth hearing more than once."
